The unidentified diver found himself face to face with the creature when the octopus appeared to face him.
When he approaches the creature, the octopus is huddled in a small pile at the bottom of the sea.

But he reacts quickly to the arrival of the diver, clinging to him while trying to film the incredible octopus.
The creature unfolds and extends its arms to become as large and impressive as possible.
Finally, the diver frees himself, but the octopus clings to the platform of his camera as he throws it away.
Rudas, who filmed the footage in the summer of 2016, said: "We laugh at the behavior of this octopus."
